    PS3 PS3 now fully supported by BBC iPlayer

    We've been waiting for native iPlayer support on our PS3 since a cunning coder created their own workaround site [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Finally our wait is over and PS3 everywhere (well, in the UK at least) can enjoy the BBC's latest offerings through their PS3s. Simply head on over to the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and you will be shown the new, specially made PS3 version (also accessible from your PC, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]). Now catching up with Merlin, Nevermind the Buzzcocks and Heroes has never been easier.

    That's a nice feature, I must admit. I won't hold my breath for it to appear on xbox live seeing as they won't/can't make money out of it.
    No sympathy for the devil; keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride...

    Tried this this morning via the official site and whenever I select anything for playback it says that javascript is not enabled (it is). The faqs on the site still say that iplayer is not ps3 or wii compliant. Am I doing something wrong??

    Works on mine, however I can't select pause or any of the other playback symbols and it doesn't play back proper full screen showing just the picture once zoomed pressing R3. It's not the smoothest playback even with 20 meg broadband, it's like it plays back at about 20 frames per second. Other than that's it's ok, I'll stick to using Sky+ though.


    Completely different I know, but [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] plays back very nice, just tried it out of interest.

    Sorry but the ps3 has been the biggest waste of money I've ever had the misfortune of dealing with. 'supporting' (in a box) bbc iplayer isn't exactly what I bought the machine for.

    Junk.

    (sorry just had to vent about it)

    Just ran the .53 update and iplayer now works fine (a bit stuttery in places but it's wireless so I expect that.)
